Every Friday afternoon my friend would bring his copy of Terra Mystica over and some other mates would drop by and we would nerd out with pizza and gaming. I recently moved interstate and missed those great times we had. I just had to get myself a copy and introduce it to some new friends and teach them what real boardgaming was about. It is a lil on the expensive side but the enjoyment I have had from this game easily makes up for it. Probably my favorite board game of all time. The rules may seem quite overwhelming at first but after a play through most people tend to have a good understanding of how it works. What I love most about this game is how much stuff there is to keep track of that it can sometimes leave you stumped on what would be the most effective move to take.
This is a great game. Have only played online, but can't wait to get it to the table to challenge my friends
